Time for me to get a new delay. My budget is whatever the Evil (G) Empire (C) will give me for a 90's Ampeg SuperJet that I'm not using, probably @$250. My workhorses during the late 80's going well into the 90's were Roland SDE 1000's that I'd simply sandwich one between my head and cab ( I see you guys grimacing; it was the 80's!) and plug straight into the head. I loved the way those sounded and functioned, but I'd like to get it on the floor. I'm currently using a Red Witch Violetta; it sounds decent but those tiny knobs, and I'd like to be able to store up a few presets. My current amp is a recently acquired Moyer modded Vibrolux, it ain't going anywhere for at least awhile. There is no effects loop, so whatever I get will have to sound good plugged straight in. The one that's caught my eye the most is the TC Nova. Any others I should consider before pulling the trigger?
